mini-vacation

We took a chance on the weather this weekend and headed to the coast. We spent the night in Gleneden Beach, which holds such fond memories for me and John. Part of our honeymoon was spent on the Oregon coast (we never knew we would end up living here!) and we love driving up this dramatic coastline.

There was a break between storms and we hiked out to the coast along the bay.

We got all dressed up and ate at a “fancy restaurant”.

We had a fireplace in our room, which was so lovely to warm up to after our cold hike to the windy beach and our walk back from the pool.

The lobby was full of windows and this reading room where we played chess and watched hailstorms pound against the windows.

It was just one night away but it felt like a week.
